Welker, Gostkowski Voted to Pro Bowl

Patriots WR Wes Welker and K Stephen Gostkowski were named to their first Pro Bowl Tuesday. Welker will be a reserve behind Broncos WR Brandon Marshall and Texans WR Andre Johnson, and Gostkowski is the AFC’s only kicker on the roster.

Welker currently has 102 receptions (2nd in the NFL) for 1,071 yards and two touchdowns this season. He, along with Matt Cassel, has helped rescue the Patriots season after Tom Brady’s catastrophic knee injury.

Gostkowski has 30 field goals already this season (tied for the NFL lead), and has been quite accurate as well (30/33, 90.9%). He’s also hit all 34 of his extra point attempts. To be honest, the Patriots kicking game has seen a seamless transition from the legendary Adam Vinatieri to Gostkowski, as the young kicker hasn’t missed a beat.

  2. Nice article, both of those players deserve this and I still don’t understand the Dolphins trading Welker away, he is so good. Randy Moss didn’t make the Pro Bowl?
